Tips on losing weight

  • Weight loss is 70-75% diet and 25-30% exercise. You can’t just workout and eat poorly and expect to lose weight. You NEED a healthy diet.

  • Drink water! water can help you to feel full and eat less, can help flush toxins out of the body, and dehydration can slow down metabolism

  • If you feel hungry, try to drink a glass of water and see how you feel in 10 minutes. Sometimes when you think you are hungry, you are really just thirsty

  • Avoid alcohol if possible. nutrition wise it’s not the best, plus it can decrease your metabolism.

  • Don’t skip breakfast and try to eat it early to kickstart your metabolism

  • When snacking and eating meals make sure you are getting protein and fiber to help you feel full.

  • strength train! The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism will be.

  • Eat slowly and eat while sitting down.

  • Try to keep yourself busy, so that you don’t just eat out of boredom.

  • Find an exercise that you like. If you are doing something you hate, you won’t be able to stick with it.

  • Don’t plan on dieting for a month and then stopping. Try to make a lifestyle change.

  • Tell people about your weight loss or fitness goals, and accountability partners are great.

  • Eat fruits and veggiesDon’t get too obsessed with the scale or a certain weight number. A pound of fat and a pound of muscle look much different.

  • Don’t get too stressed about the weight loss. It’s a journey.

    D.E.T.A.I.L.S The Book

    So its been awhile since my last post, but that's because I have working on a book that I would like to get published in the future.  As most people know, I am an IT in the Navy and will retire soon.  After retirement from the military, I would like to pursue a career in health and fitness.  I have working working on a plan for people would like to return and get to a healthy lifestyle.  Right now I am going to school in efforts to receive my degree in Sports and Health Science and eventually becoming a trainer and dietitian.  Those are my dreams, and without dreams you have no goals.  My ultimate goal is to improve my health and the health of others.
